I'm back again!!!

Yeehaw – I’m so glad to post a new FO!!
YUP YUP – I finished the shrug for Emily. It only took me a few hours, spread out over 3 days.

I added a shell border around the neck, and 2 rows of single crochet along the bottom edge, and a row of single crochet around the arm holes. It used almost an entire skein of White Simply Soft, with an I hook.

I’m already working on two other projects:
a bucket hat for R and a Shawl for me!!!

I’m feeling really good about most things now, so I am loving the feel of all my yarn again. It’s so funny – I’ve had these fibers for quite some time, but when they’ve been locked up in storage containers for almost a year – taking them out again is like buying new yarn (without the price tag!)
Plus, this past weekend, I was in Walmart to grab 2 skeins of Homespun for the Shawl, and happened to peek at the clearance shelf – They had Bernat Foxy on clearance for .50 skein!!
I scooped up 20 balls (and forgot all about the Homespun – which was fine, cuz I found some in my storage bins!)
